British Sub Bases: Off Limits?

Several media outlets published the Google Earth Imagery of the Royal Navy's submarine base. FOX News showed a variety of angles taken with satellite imagery. What's your opinion? Should supposedly secret military bases be off-limits to the peering eye of commercial satellites?

That's bad, but not as bad as the situation a few weeks ago where Google Earth is alleged to have revealed a secret drone base in Pakistan. However, the flip side to this issue are people that take censorship of online maps to an extreme, like the congressman in California that introduced a bill requiring online mapping programs to blur out schools, places of worship, government or medical buildings or face fines of $250,000 a day, and possible jail time.
